David Lauren and Lauren Bush are engaged, the NY Post is reporting. The fashionable couple started dating six years ago after they met at the Vogue Costume Institute gala, so it was fitting that Lauren proposed Friday night at the Met.
It is truly a union of fashion and pedigree. Lauren is the 39-year-old son of Ralph Lauren and Bush is a model, designer (she has a line called Lauren Pierce), and is most known today for her FEED bag charity whose bags and other products combat hunger.
We’ve been awaiting this union because if Lauren Pierce Bush (W’s niece) takes her future husband’s name she’ll be Lauren Lauren. And that will be hilarious. No word yet, of course, on whether she’ll actually go that route. She could always take Lauren’s original family name, Lifshitz, to avoid the whole Lauren squared thing but we kind of doubt it.
